From rusty frame to polished and freshly painted, the Rocky Mountain Custom’s shop restores and rebuilds custom and classic cars to award winning show quality.
Jeff and Monica Huffman, owners of Rocky Mountain Customs, started their business six years ago in the garage of their home. Three years ago they moved into the present location at 119 Sollid Road. Their phone number is 271-5441.
Huffman has a lot of experience with cars and machinery. He said, “I have worked on anything with an internal combustion engine since I was a kid old enough to turn a wrench. I attended UTI in Phoenix, and studied auto and diesel technology. After graduating I returned home to work. I worked on farm machinery for many years.”
Huffman prides himself on only having two to three projects underway at a time which allows him time to focus on each project. He said, “We share each step of the project with the customer through photos and in-shop involvement from initial tear down to turning the key.”
Services they provide include building the custom show cars and pickups, restoring classic cars back to original and when time allows, they work on the 4-wheelers and snowmobiles.
Huffman said, “This last August, our 65’ Impala project won Best Convertible at the 11th National Good Guy Car Show in Spokane.”
Huffman said, “Each car we build, we try to out-do the last. Our cars have become major award winners and our mission statement is to become one of the top custom car builders in the United States.”
